Strip search evidence disputed: Report
A man caught with drugs during a strip search claimed only some of them were his, according to this report:
While searching Roberts’ person, deputies felt a soft object in his buttocks. The report said Roberts then said, "Let me get it," and pulled out a clear plastic bag of marijuana weighing 4.5 grams.
He was then asked if he was holding anything else, and Roberts said no.
Deputies then felt another soft object in the same area and pulled it out through the exterior of Roberts’ shorts. The object was a bag with 27 pieces of rock cocaine weighing 3.5 grams, the report stated.
When the bag fell to the ground, Roberts immediately said, according to the report, "The white stuff is not mine, but the weed is."
